You might want to save the specimen. Morel cultivators might be interested in a mulch morel that fruits in summer.

Date is correct

Yes, I did. It was growing on mulch, so can only assume that it was watered. It was also in Palos Verdes estates, which is a bit cooler than the rest of the area.

Morels in August?

Did you really find this mushroom is Southern California on August 30th? It’s a bit late in the season for morels.
